LSED Based Agency for SMEs - Working Model
The following model offers an innovative path for policy and decision makers and other actors in regions in which they operate in, especially in peripheral areas. The model is a basis for continued development and expansion and may be used if credit is given to its creators.

Our overseas partners from the Puglia region in Southern Italy and CRIA from the Algarve region in Southern Portugal also made a substantial contribution to developing the model by sharing their knowledge.

The model proposes a concept, structure, job definitions, operational infrastructure, tools and working methods. It is concerned with realizing the hidden potential embodied in local small and medium businesses specifically and with the process of developing the local economy in general. Moreover, at the heart of the concept and model is an understanding of the way in which local businesses are integrated within the context in which they operate – the local economy and community.

The model is a basis for continued development and expansion and may be used if credit is given to its creators.
